PGR88: “American citizens not going to get excited about the NSA monitoring foreign Governments or foreign entities.”
Agreed. Other nations spy on the US, and we should spy on them. I thought Snowden was a hero when he revealed the US government was spying on its own citizens. If he’s providing intelligence to the Chinese, who are clearly involved in massive intelligence gathering against the US government and businesses, then he’s a traitor.
During the Cold War, would Snowden have went to the KGB and given them evidence the US was spying on the USSR? That’s a similar situation. They were spying on us, and we were spying on them.
I suppose espionage wouldn’t exist in an ideal world, but other nations aren’t going to stop spying on us if we stop spying on them.
I am in Thailand and since you are reading this the NSA can now 'legally' monitor your communications. Enjoy.
If this revelation of blatant violations of protections guaranteed by our constitutions 4th amendment is not worrisome to people here... I have to believe that some of the posts that seem to be advocating murdering the whistle blower are... from well... plants. My expectation is that being a member of Free Republic is more than enough justification for this administration to search you hard drive.
